That's true, but there might be a correlation between the team's performance and Aebischer's presence in net. They just don't seem to be as comfortable with him there, going back to last season. I don't know, maybe it's a communication/comfort issue that will work itself out with more games, but he just seems to make the team tighten up kind of the way Theodore did last year. At least, compared to when Huet's in net, it seems that way.

Abby's just giving the job to Huet...

David blames his teamates for taking too many penalties

Christobal doesn't complain because he wins games.

He's right. I'm glad he said it. STOP WITH THE PENALTIES ALREADY! If you're going to take a penalty, at least throw a bodycheck. No more hooking penalties! Ugh...

Although I agree we take too many penalties we are no where near the top 5 for the season. We are actually right in the middle of the pact.
well here are the top 9 teams. we certianly would be in the top 5 .Notice the game diffrentials example the Kings played 4 more games than us.






Phx Coyotes
23 games short handed 150 times

New York Rangers
24 games short handed 148 times


Flordia
25 games short handed 145 times

Vancouver
24 games short handed 142 times


Carolina Hurricanes
25 games short handed 141 times

Los Angeles Kings
26 games short handed 141 times

Atlanta Thrashers
25 games short handed 138 times


Pittsburgh Penguins
22 games short handed 138 times

********. Oops, can I say that on here? The problem here isn't Souray, it's all these couch potatoes that sit around and criticize. If Souray couldn't play defence he wouldn't have lasted 9 years in the NHL. Everyone makes a mistake now and then and I bet every team has someone that people take their frustration out on. Sure, now and then some forward goes around him with the puck and scores a goal, but that happens to everyone. Let me ask you a question. When Kovalev makes a move around a defenceman, dekes the goalie and puts the puck in the top shelf do you say "Wow, what a move" or do you say "Man that defenceman sure sucks"? The bottom line is the best defencemen in the league sometimes look like midget A players when an opposing forward makes the right move and goes around him. That doesn't mean he sucks, that just means that particular forward was better on that particular play.

In their last game Bonk was -2, Bouillon -1, Johnson -1, Kovalev -1, Markov -2, Perezhogin -1, Rivet -1 and Ryder -1.
Sourays plus minus was 0. Why not blame someone else for a change? If you really watched the game, you could probably blame the lack of finish around the net in the first period or the terrible reffing.

exactly, he is just not needed here. He is worth more to us in a trade than playing hockey games for MTL. Danis would do the job or even halak.


We need to play Huet till he gets tired. Play him every game.....

For all those who feel he can't play every game except the odd back to backer, give your head a shake and look at other goalies who play all the time. It happens!!

Abby is just getting the cold shoulder from the habs, teams like to have a #1 not 2 #1a's

The team just looks much better and confident with Huet in the net. If you can't see that your not watching the games.



Abby will be traded by february at the latest. I believe he will be traded within a week or 2 personally. They may just be waiting for danis to play 4 or 5 good games in a row as he has had a somewhat up and down start to the season. Halak is pushing for the #1 spot there so its getting interesting

how can you blame him on the 4th goal? souray was playing for the flyers on that one ....






on the other hand go huet go good luck this evening

You're righton almost everything, except one, even though that 4th goal was a god awful play by both Ryder and Souray why was Aebischer WAY OUT OF POSITION laying flat on his belly. There is no reason he should be laying down.

I suppose that is true, but the fact is that the team isn't giving the goals that Aebi needs to win. He's giving more than a reasonable chance to win and we're just not putting away our chances ... When we fail to do so, we just fade away after.

Disappointing to hear Aebi's excuses the other night. Huet gets the job done. On the same team. Why can't he? Maybe because he flops more. Plus there's the fact that our PK is one of the best in the league anyways.

No matter how "true" Aebischer's comments may have been, there's no excuse for saying that publicly...you'd figure that if you were a goalie struggling to prove that you're worth a look as a number one goaltender you'd do your best game in and game out and keep your mouth shut when you lose? Saying stuff like that isn't helping anybody, least of all yourself.

Man.. I feel terrible for Aebischer right now. He had a really hot start to the season and clouded up the #1 position quite a bit, mixed in with Huet's average play, but after those 2 5-1 drubbings and the Flyers game he's all but thrown it away. I was a huge fan of his after Roy retired and I was excited to see him come to Montreal. I hoped he'd do well because he deserves it, but then all of this happens. The comment he made shouldn't have been said to the press, but it's obvious from the frustration he's experienced.

listen i'm usually first to defend goalies however i have to agree Abby was way out of position on that goal...he's just not as confident as Huet and is not as positionally sound

anyhoo that whole play was ryders fault...and eve on the weak clear/pass souray tried if if ryder wasent standing around looking lost it could have been a good pass...

i think souray had the idea of starting off the play agin for a 4 on 3 but ryder just stood there...

François Gagnon on his blog says that he was there when Aebischer made this remark, and that it wasn't made in the way the media reported it. So this may have been a bit overblown.

After Huet lost to Buffalo in MTL, he took the blame for the lost. Huet knows about the MTL pressure and he dealt with it well last year at the begining when he was so, so and this year at the begining when he was so, so.

Abby should have done the same, he failed miserably. He doesn't seem to be able to take the pressure from playing here. Just like Theosleeps. Theo tought he could handle the pressure, but he never did as a starter. When he had his great year, he was a backup.
